I love Bill Mauldins work.
He was a GI genuis in olive drab.
Garbage find of the day!
Looks to be a hobby-bench special. A mixture of older looking/ antique parts and modern parts. Mechanism works, hammer spring is very weak. Barrel is octagonal... looks like there is a dove tail on the top of the barrel for a sight, but it's missing.Plaque on the side is very crudely engraved: "George F. Cacchiono 1980."
There is a ball stuck in the barrel...
Thats an interesting little item Joe, but a painful one, getting a ball stuck in a barrel
Thanks, Dave! I've been hobbling around the office with one eye closed and making "ARGHHH" sounds with it this morning. The more I look at it, I think it's something made via a kit. Not valuable in the least, but still kind of cool!
It def. made work a little more entertaining early on a Thursday!
lol, well done guys. I'll borrow a parrot as long as it talks!
YO HO HO and a rottle of bum, (my Jack Sparrow impersonation) good aint it
